Launched in 1993, the NEC Engineering and Construction Contract has become one of the UK�s leading standard forms of contract for major construction and civil engineering projects. The third edition, popularly known as NEC3, is a process based contract embodying project and commercial management best practice, so its basic philosophy differs from the more adversarial approach of other standard construction contracts. Since the first edition of this book, the third edition of the contract has seen the introduction of a new secondary option for use in the UK and amendments to a number of clauses. In addition, in September 2011, changes were introduced to cater for the amendments to the Housing Grants, Construction and Regeneration Act 1996 contained in the Local Democracy, Economic Development and Construction Act 2009, which became effective for all new contracts entered into from 1 October 2011. These amendments have been incorporated into the text. A Practical Guide to the NEC3 Engineering and Construction Contract will be useful to everyone in the construction industry working on a project under this contract. It will be of interest to the complete construction supply chain, including employers, construction professions, contractors and sub-contractors, as well as consultants and lawyers advising any of these parties, either in the preparation of contract documentation or the day to day management or the resolution of problem situations which may arise.

When all parties involved in the construction process fully understand their roles and are able to anticipate potential points of conflict, disputes and delays will be minimised. The Employer’s and Engineer’s Guide to the FIDIC Conditions of Contract sets out the essential administrative requirements of a FIDIC based contract by reference to the FIDIC 1999 Red Book. The obligations and duties of the Employer and the Engineer are identified and discussed. Potential pitfalls are highlighted and likely consequences pointed out. The importance of the Employer’s role in the preparation of tenders, which fully reflect his requirements and duties and obligations arising in the execution of the works, is emphasised. The key role of the Engineer in the effective administration of contracts after award is examined and commentary provided. Included in the guide are a number of appendices, including model letters which will be of value to less experienced staff (particularly those whose mother-tongue is not the English language). Engineers, quantity surveyors and project managers engaged in the contractual administration of international projects using FIDIC forms of contract will find the concise guidance in simple and jargon-free language provided here invaluable. This, together with the author’s earlier book, Contractor’s Guide to the FIDIC Conditions of Contract - which describes the duties, rights and responsibilities of the Contractor – represents the totality of supervision, design and execution of construction projects executed under the FIDIC Conditions of Contract. This book’s companion website offers invaluable resources to freely download, adapt and use: Model letters for use by the Employer Model letters for use by the Contractor Sample Interim Payment Certificate Model Form for Submissions to the Engineer Model Form of Engineer’s Order for Varied Works Model Form of Daywork/Daily Record Sheets

The first edition of the Code of Practice for Project Management for Construction and Development, published in 1992, was groundbreaking in many ways. Now in its fifth edition, prepared by a multi-institute task force coordinated by the CIOB and including representatives from RICS, RIBA, ICE, APM and CIC, it continues to be the authoritative guide and reference to the principles and practice of project management in construction and development. Good project management in construction relies on balancing the key constraints of time, quality and cost in the context of building functionality and the requirements for sustainability within the built environment. Thoroughly updated and restructured to reflect the challenges that the industry faces today, this edition continues to drive forward the practice of construction project management. The principles of strategic planning, detailed programming and monitoring, resource allocation and effective risk management, widely used on projects of all sizes and complexity, are all fully covered. The integration of Building Information Modelling at each stage of the project life is a feature of this edition. In addition, the impact of trends and developments such as the internationalisation of construction projects and the drive for sustainability are discussed in context. Code of Practice will be of particular value to clients, project management professionals and students of construction, as well as to the wider construction and development industries. Much of the information will also be relevant to project management professionals operating in other commercial spheres.

The NEC compared and contrasted will assist all levels of professionals involved in procurement in the construction industry to make informed choices and give balanced advice when deciding which contract to use for a particular project. This authoritative book examines professional services contracts and construction contracts, as well as contractual arrangements for partnering. Building and engineering sectors of the construction industry are covered, as well as the possibility of procuring projects outside the UK. This book demonstrates that modern construction contracts can facilitate project management, as well as define legal relationships and that efficient procurement of complex projects demands a proactive, not a reactive, approach. The NEC compared and contrasted will be an invaluable resource for consultants, clients and contractors in the construction industry. It will also provide students preparing for their professional exams with a clear and concise guide to comparative standard form construction contracts.

In this book the author describes these changes as a construction reformation and suggests that the advent of the NEC played an important part in promoting those changes. Since its introduction to the construction sector in 1991, the NEC has been highly recommended in the Latham Report and more recently by the Office of Government Commerce and is now widely used on many small and large projects in the UK and worldwide. ENSURING PROJECT OBJECTIVES In this guide, Bill Weddell, a long standing member of the NEC Panel and a highly respected consultant and trainer on the NEC utilises his skills and wide knowledge of the NEC to provide new and existing users with guidance on how to select and implement NEC contracts to suit differing project needs and objectives. ACCURATE CONTRACT STRATEGIES This guide explains in a concise and practical manner how to decide on the appropriate contract strategy for any given project and how to prepare the contract document for each type of NEC contract. It describes each of the documents and explains the selection methods for the various options and how these are used to produce the contract document. The book also clarifies some of the distinguishing features of the NEC contracts in contrast to the more traditional standard forms and explains how the management procedures in each contract can be used to achieve the Employer's objectives by effective control of time, cost and quality. THE READERSHIP This guide is a valuable tool for anybody involved in the NEC supply chain including clients, consultants, contractors, subcontractors, project managers, quantity surveyors, adjudicators and service suppliers - across the complete spectrum of construction activity. ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Bill Weddell was on the original NEC Working Group and drafting team and has been involved in the later development of the NEC family of contracts up to the publication of NEC3. He has long experience of both design and construction of major civil engineering works including highways, bridges, docks and harbours, tunnels and sea defence works. He was Head of Contracts for a firm of consulting engineers and is now a contract consultant and runs training courses on the NEC.
